Over the course of 2016, I photographed a little over 100 performances around Santa Fe, spending night after night at places like Meow Wolf, The Skylight, Santa Fe Bandstand, and Zephyr. Behind the lens, I aspire to document the mood, energy, artistry of a specific moment in time. Some performances provide nonstop thrills, resulting in more than a handful of great images. Others are less inspired and it shows in the pictures. The following 50 images are my favorite shots of the year (limiting myself to one per performance).
